The Phana Monkey Project welcomes students and Thailand enthusiasts who wish to have a volunteer experience. Volunteers from nineteen countries have enjoyed their time in Phana.

Students have conducted studies on animal behavior and forest biodiversity. Additionally, the Phana Monkey Project has a close relationship with the Traditional Thai Medicine Centre.
Helping in the forest
We wish to recruit short-term (1-4 weeks) volunteers who are willing to help maintain the monkeys environment by providing them with water, food, and a clean habitat. Duties include, keeping feeding areas clean and clearing litter (mostly plastic bags -- litter-pickers provided) and monitoring group movements.
We are only able to take a few volunteers at a time, so please DO NOT APPLY if your main interest is to be with lots of others!
Helping in village schools
Suitably qualified volunteers are needed to help with the teaching of English in small village primary schools in Phana District. You may also assist with educational visits to the forest and our Study Centre (2-4 week stay).
